Incorrectly reporting "Invalid channel name" for jabber chat

On a jabber account, I am unable to join an existing chat channel with a # in the name.

If I comment out the nick_ok check in root_commands.c, Bitlbee is able to join the channel and participate correctly.

Interesting. This exposes a bug in BitlBee's picture of correct channel names.

You can still use the room if you just set the channel name to something with only one &/# at the beginning of the name, but a proper fix would indeed be nice to have. I'll figure something out.

changeset:wilmer-ui-fix,663 fixes this.

Not sure if I'll try to copy this to the main branch, I'd rather put energy into finishing and merging ui-fix.

I guess this was fixed when ui-fix was merged (3.0). Just tested and it does work.
